Tide Cave (おミズのせかい / Omizu no Sekai  LitThe World of Water) is the second level of the Forest. It is also the first hidden stage of the world, accessed from Boss Bass Bridge's secret exit. A rather simplistic water stage with Layer 3 tides. The level has no secret exit.

The LevelEdit

Tide Cave is a shortcut to the Bay world, meaning you don't need to accomplish Morton the Neat. A simple tide level with a few floating platforms here and there. In the second half, there are less platforms except for a few blocks here end there, used as landing points for the Sumo Bros' lightning projectiles. There is also a pipe leading to a Spade Game in the second part. Tide Cave seems to take territory of the Bay world.
